‘The performances make the movie. Above all, Hadar Galron… shines as the brilliant, beautiful, devoted and sometimes infuriating title character.’
A contemporary ultra-Orthodox family in Jerusalem is thrown into crisis as Bruria, wife and mother, goes on a quest to find the last copy of her rabbi father’s book.
Controversial on publication, the book was burned by his religious opponents and the family denounced. Her husband Yaakov is opposed to the quest, but the search for the book becomes a crusade for Bruria during which she confronts the compromises she has made in her life, her desires and her limitations.
